Re: PCGS just graded an 1878-S VAM 58 SP65!

For a number of years, There has been a known 1878-s Vam 58 PCGS 65PL in the PCGS pop report. Comparing the pictures from the PCGS system regarding this known PCGS 65PL Vam 58 & this “new” Specimen Vam 58 PCGS 65PL,..... These two Vam 58’s are the same coin! See nick on the rim of the Rev between E ...

Re: PCGS just graded an 1878-S VAM 58 SP65!

To clarify a key point, only the Reverse die of the 78-s Vam 60 “broke”.
The OB die Went on to produce the remainder of Vam 57’s & Vam 26 LDS!

Great group,
I saw the 22A Raw when you AQed it in Baltimore.
It’s better than 62, I’d try again.

Re: PCGS just graded an 1878-S VAM 58 SP65!

So, just to make this perfectly clear: The 1878-s Vam 60 piece with the engraved inscription “ONE OF THE FIRST TEN COINED APRIL 17Th 1878 From J. Gus Burt “ that was In the legendary ELiasberg collection, is one of the 10 presentation pieces. BUT it’s not the first 1878-S using the B-1 Rev. That bel...

Re: PCGS just graded an 1878-S VAM 58 SP65!

It took a LONG time to prove it, but .....Kenny is the first person Who came up with the theory that the Vam 60 wasn’t the first one minted. From the mint records, the dignitaries were present for the 1878-s Vam 60 mid afternoon On April 17th. The J. Gus Burt presentation piece came from this ceremo...

Re: PCGS just graded an 1878-S VAM 58 SP65!

Re: 1878-S VAM-57 Long Nock cherrypicked

Nice AQ of this Vam 57.
A XF+ AU- is top 25% of gradeable Vam 57 LN’s
Well over 50% of the survivalable LN’s are road kill/Body baged unless you send them to the
Squirrels best friend the Junk Vammer Pocket Change/Goldsmith.
OB looks polished to make it “shine” so not looking promising.
